Kindness To Others Can Transform Someones Darkest Hours

I wanted to give a hearty shout out and thank you to all of our parks personnel and citizens who spruced up Veterans Park for the Washington County Fair and Social. It never ceases to amaze me how wonderful volunteerism is so prevalent in our city. Thank you again so much.

This brings me to a thought I came across several months ago. It goes like this, What people see you do may not be remembered; what they hear you say may be forgotten; but how they feel your influence in the times of need will forever be remembered. Kindness to others can transform someones darkest hours with a ray of sunshine. You will never know how much your caring matters. Our purpose in life should be to contribute in some way to making things better. Whatever those things are to you.

I like this quote from Mahatma Ghandi, Its the action, not the fruit of the action thats important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there will be any fruit. But that doesnt mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your actions. But if you do nothing; there will be no result.

Your efforts to make a difference will never go unnoticed. Anything we all can do to lift humanity has dignity and importance.

I cannot do everything, but I can do something, right? Make your days count...... everyone of them.
